Coming down from the holy-expletive deleted- intensity of Sneffels, we opted to chill in The Ice Lakes of the San Juan National Forest. Yes it really looks like that and you should go ASAP. #nofilter #islandlake #icelakes #sanjuannationalforest  (at Island Lake)

The same day I finished Slickrock, I met Dustin Tran in Ouray, CO, and we climbed our first Fourteener—Mt. Sneffels. Its name is whimsical but the face is anything but—loose, ankle-rolling rocks layered on vertigo-inducing grades bring one to a small 5 foot ledge before the summit where a slip of the hand or foot would guarantee instant death. That was a neat surprise feature. #mountsneffels #14er #14000ft #terror #DIO #doitonce  (at Mount Sneffels Wilderness)

Drove 16 hours straight from Yosemite to Moab, UT, to take care of last summer’s unfinished business with the slickrock mountain bike trail. #slickrock #mtb #sandflats (at Slickrock (Moab, UT))

I also received a crash course in Trad climbing and under the tutelage and encouragement of @jsaksa, completed my first 5.9 finger-crack climb on real rock. Here Joe cleans the rope from our session. #yosemite #swanslab

This week was remarkable. Started at Yosemite—at first disappointed the falls were dry—elated to find swimming holes and serene views where thousand of gallons flow in other months. Here’s @jsaksa standing at the mouth of Yosemite Falls. #yosemite #yosemitefalls #nofilter
